Songs & Rhymes

Song: Insects All Around 
(tune – Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Lady bugs and butterflies,
Buzzing bees up in the sky.
Teeny, tiny little ants,
Crawling up and down the plants
Many insects can be found
In the sky and on the ground.

Rhyme: I Saw a Little LadyBug

I saw a little lady bug flying in the air,
But when I tried to catch her, two bugs were there.

Two little lady bugs flew up in a tree.
I tiptoed very quietly, and then I saw three.

Three little lady bugs–I looked for one more.
I saw one sitting on the ground, that made four.

Four little lady bugs–another one arrived.
I saw her sitting on a flower, and that made five.

Five little lady bugs, all red and black–
I clapped my hands and shouted, and they all flew back!

Rhyme: Ten Little Grasshoppers

One Little, two little, three little grasshoppers,
Four little, five little, six little grasshoppers,
Seven little, eight little, nine little grasshoppers,
Ten grasshoppers in my yard.

Grasshoppers, grasshoppers,
Hopping all around me.
Grasshoppers, grasshoppers,
Hopping all around me.
Grasshoppers, grasshoppers,
Hopping all around me.
Ten grasshoppers in my yard.

Ten Little, nine little, eight little grasshoppers,
Seven little, six little, five little grasshoppers,
Four little, three little, two little grasshoppers,
One grasshopper in my yard.

Grasshopper, grasshopper,
Hopping all around me.
Grasshopper, grasshopper,
Hopping all around me.
Grasshopper, grasshopper,
Hopping all around me.
One grasshopper in my yard.
